Biographical Information

I was born in York in 1966, and was brought up there. I read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, followed by a D.Phil. in theoretical chemistry from Oxford, completed in 1990. During the next year, I held a postdoctoral position at Oxford funded by BP's Venture Research, looking at electronic structure and conduction in disordered materials. From 1991 to 1993, I continued this work as a research fellow of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851. From 1993 to 1995, I was a Lise Meitner research fellow in the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the Technical University of Vienna, looking at theory and simulations of hydrogenated diamond surfaces.

From 1995, I worked on the CCP4 project in protein crystallography at the Daresbury Laboratory in Cheshire, UK, and from 2001 to 2009 I was the leader of the core group of the CCP4 project. Major projects within CCP4 included development of TLS refinement, a major re-write of the core software libraries, and automation of structure solution through molecular replacement. From 2007, I am group leader of the SCD computational biology group, working on computational structural biology and data intensive bioinformatics.
